Fujifilm has released the Fujifilm X-T30 interchangeable-lens mirrorless APS-C camera and XF 16mm f/2.8 lens, and has upgraded its rugged line with the FinePix XP140.
The Fujifilm X-T30 interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera comes with a 26.1MP BSI APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and an X-Processor 4 quad-core CPU. This new camera is smaller and lighter than its big brother, the Fujifilm X-T3 camera, but packs the same processor and sensor into its even more portable body. The camera features improved face and eye detection for its autofocus system, 4K/30p and Full HD 120 fps video recording, a 3.0" tilting touchscreen LCD, and built-in Bluetooth communications.

Its autofocus is silent and it is weather- and dust resistant—able to function at temperatures as low as 14°F.

The camera is water-, dust-, freeze-, and shockproof, of course, and has a sensitivity range of ISO 100-12800. Additionally, it has a Smile Shutter mode and Bluetooth Low Energy.
Dustproof, waterproof to 25m, shockproof to 1.8mm and freezeproof to 10°C, the compact 207g XP140 is a good accessory for capturing a variety of adventures.
In addition to the durable design and build, the XP140 has a FUJINON lens that boasts the company’s colour reproduction technology and uses a 16.4 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and new processor. The camera also contains a host of automatic functions such as main subject recognition and new user interface.
The XP140 has a 16.4 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and FUJINON’s 5x optical image stabilized zoom lens starting from 28mm which can be doubled to 10x using Fujifilm’s Intelligent Digital Zoom technology. The XP140 also has a maximum sensitivity of ISO12800 (one stop higher than its predecessor).
The FUJIFILM XP140 comes in four colours, Lime, Yellow, Graphite and and Sky Blue and will be available from March 2019 with an RRP of £179.
